My travel handbag of choice is the very compact Pacsafe Citysafe 100 Gii Anti-theft Petite Travel Handbag, and I thought I would share with you how the bag has been working for me. In this short video (below) I review the Pacsafe Citysafe’s features, and also show you how much the size actually fits, and how it looks.
As the name suggests, Pacsafe Citysafe is an anti-theft handbag, and whilst it is certainly not the most glamorous looking bag, it’s quite streamlined and I really like its safety features. I purchased the bag because of its features which include slash-guard shoulder strap and sides of the bag (i.e. would-be bag snatchers can’t cut through your strap or the side of the bag); RFID blocking material to keep anything with a microchip safe from identity thieves; and a secure zipper that clips in place.
I find that the bag provides some added peace of mind because of these anti-theft features that can stop, or at least greatly slow down, pickpockets or identity thieves. I believe Pacsafe have recently come out with some new handbag designs so there are now more sizes and designs to choose from.
I hope this video will provide some tips on what kind of handbag to select if you’re going on a long trip (or anywhere really, and you’re just looking for added security for every-day commuting). Thanks for watching!
